The Details...

Tucked away just a stone’s throw from the medieval town of Cartmel in the Lake District, Upper Crumble and Crumble Cottage are two beautiful self-catering stone cottages, lovingly converted by the current owners from the large 17th Century Grade II listed barn. The cottages are a magical and romantic place to stay, with a unique aesthetic which remains true to the authentic style of this area. From the wildlife garden to the private hot tub for Upper Crumble’s guests, everything in Crumble Cottages has been thought of to create a relaxing and luxurious atmosphere.

Both properties benefit from open plan, light-filled main living spaces, centrally heated with wood-burning stoves for extra cosiness. The feeling of peace is intensified by the interior finishes of these pretty spaces.

The design of these two converted cottages are in keeping with the local area with whitewashed stone, exposed timber beams, and modern farmhouse-style. Benefiting from an open plan layout, the kitchen-cum-living rooms are both designed to capture the famous Cumbria light, which pours in through the expansive windows. Guests can expect a well-appointed kitchen with a three-way microwave combination oven, in addition to a full range of similarly high-end kitchen appliances, and guests staying at Crumble Cottage are also encouraged to help themselves to the herbs growing in front of the cottage. Between the underfloor-heated slate bathroom and the private hot tub in your own landscaped courtyard, Upper Crumble truly is equipped with everything you need to unwind over the course of a Lakeland escape.

The cottages’ proximity to the breath-taking beauty of the Lake District make them an obvious choice for ramblers and outdoors enthusiasts looking to relax in romantic comfort after a long day spent outside. While the extraordinary topographical grandeur of the national park has long drawn walkers and artists from all over the world, there are also an increasingly broad range of additional attractions in this corner of the world. You can take a boat trip around Windemere, which is very popular.

Cartmel is a a true foodie destination with some wonderful offerings. Simon Rogan’s two Michelin Star restaurant L’Enclume is situated in the nearby village of Cartmel, as well as sister establishment Rogan & Co, which has just won its first Michelen star. The Cartmel Coffee is also worth a visit, before heading to the high-end artisanal Unsworth Yard market, with a micro brewery, cheese shop, and wine bar. With a heated snug to enjoy your purchases, this makes for a lovely outing. Cartmel is also home of sticky toffee pudding! Pop in to the local shop to get a taste.

CoolStays user: Linda
"Can’t wait to return. We thoroughly enjoyed Cartmel, especially Upper Crumble. Such a beautiful place with wonderful hosts. The attention to detail is phenomenal! Loved every single little thing about our stay. The cottage is stunning and the hot tub is perfect. Thank you, and well done on being one of the very few who’ve got it just right. Perfect in every way. Highly recommended you to everyone...5* (even Living magazine agrees so I can’t be wrong!)."

"Lovely relaxing stay in Crumble Cottage. The cottage is cosy and very thoughtfully designed to maximise the space. The bathroom is beautiful and we slept really well and work to the sound of birdsong in the morning. The two outside seating areas meant we could enjoy the sunshine all day ..from morning coffee through to a glass wine in the evening. The location is ideal for wandering into Cartmel and there are lovely walks straight from the door. And to top it all our hosts, Sarah and Stuart, made us feel extremely welcome. What more could you ask for ..we'll be back!"
